Shop around for dog meds!

I got an old fat mutt at the animal shelter, took him to the vet because he had lots of bumps all over, and clearly wasn’t on top of his game. They prescribed an anti-allergy pill called Apoquel, although we don’t know what he is allergic to. I had...

Vintage K9

We found this old guy at the animal shelter, looking kinda pathetic because of allergies, according to our vet. We got some pills and eyedrops and special shampoo, now Cody is feeling better. He is enjoying having a back yard, and snoozing on the floor in my office, with...

Minions need to pay attention

I was getting a picture of Daphne with this minion, trying to get a better shot. Should have put it in video, the Minion has a hilarious double-take when after the picture I said, “I need to take another picture! He blinked!”...

Climb up here to get a better angle to fling poop

Our friend sent me a picture from Costa Rica, while we are experiencing a cold snap. Just good timing I guess. Got this text while standing in line at Costco. Teresa asked about the weather there, and I replied (Just as we got to checkout) “Well, the monkey’s not...

Suspense!

I was scanning in a bunch of my aunt Jean’s old photos, that’s her in the road, but who is the guy standing several feet behind her? Is he holding… a scythe? I zoomed in and it’s either a scythe, or a paper of some sort. Maybe he is...

The We’ll See ashtray

This was my dad’s ashtray that was next to his recliner, usually for cigar ashes. I remember when I was a kid, right around the time of the moon landing, I got an Estes model rocket catalog in the mail. So I made a pitch to invest in some...

That whistling sound…

I had a bit of a hard time sleeping last night… Had the radio on classical music to try to soothe the mental torment, but something about that violin concerto wasn’t quite right. It took probably 20 minutes of careful listening, occasionally holding my breath, being very still, to...

Parkside Kids

I guess this is the class of 1967, for picture day I got your basic buzz cut (Dad had a flat top! And I don’t mean that in a good way) – Girls on the other hand… That girl behind me, either her mother is a hair stylist or...

Maybe I should have said “tiger”? Pictionary fun

We have been sort of confined to quarters by bad weather, so to keep from going all REDRUM! we have been playing Pictionary. Now, every time we open the Pictionary box, I am confronted by the the drawings from earlier games. This picture is pretty obviously “Deodorant”… … But...
